Kim Kardashian Defends Her Kitty Handling

April 20th, 2010 // 2 Comments

I’m always wondering what Kim Kardashian’s seemingly daily photoshoots lead to. I pretty much assumed not much, until she went naked for Harper’s Bazaar. Then Kim’s tweeted a pic from a recent shoot with Allure where she holds up a cat by the scruff on it’s neck along with the words “Pic from my shoot yesterday…good kitty cat!”

Enter PETA, ASPCA, and many disturbed Twitter followers. PETA argued that it’s a mistake to think that since a mother cat picks up her kittens this way “a hand under the rump” isn’t necessary and ASPCA worries her handling will lead to others’ mishandling. Fans were just blatantly turned off.

Kim, who enjoyed a cruise in Australia today, took to her blog and defended herself writing “Rest assured, the owner and vet were on set and showed me how to pick him up. The cat was not harmed in any way and is perfectly fine! I love animals and would never do anything to harm animals.” I want to believe her but something about that photo just feels uncomfortable.

    THIS IS NOT COOL!

    Bad move on her part as this will offend and upset a lot of people. I don’t give a shit if a mother cat carries her kittens this way. This stupid bitch is NOT THIS CATS MOTHER!

    Seriously, if I ever witnessed anyone doing this to a cat I would give them a smack up-side their head.

    I was a fan, but not now.

    What an arsehole…I was never a fan of KK…but this pic pretty much cements the deal for me.
    She is a complete idiot savant. No feline deserves that kind of treatment. Strike that, no animal deserves this.
    Shes not even pretty….she looks like Jocelyn Wildenstein,
    I hope PETA put her further down the popularity scale of hopeless camera whores
